Flying the L-049 Super Constellation between Sydney, Australia and London

This issue our flight adventure re-enacts a set of historical and ground-breaking routes while exploring what is was like flying in the original Star of the Skies – the Lockheed Super L-049 Super Constellation – as we fly the 1947 Kangaroo Service between Sydney, Australia and London.
